03.02.2021 Yeah, you got to mix it, child, you got to fix It must be love, it’s a beech

I’ve shared a few images of winter foliage that was a surprise to some.  On Sunday while driving around before yesterday’s North Quabbin image, I spent some time in the Federated Women’s Clubs State Forest looking at beeches-Fagus grandifolia.

Here’s a little gallery of a few of the images from that time in the woods.

Eventually all color will fade just before the leaves drop and new ones burst forth from the tightly closed buds

    We bought a copper beech sapling some time ago and have procrastinated planting it–hopefully not for too long. It is now in our idea of its new location, and we’re anxiously eager to see if it will thrive.

    That little tree is posing for you beautifully in front of the darker trees!

    One of my favorite trees… I often stop to listen to the rustle of the leaves in the wind. (One of the things I love to hear in summer and miss in winter.) Bet this wind stripped a lot of leaves last night!

    • I drove by some others this morning and they were still leaved but of course 20 miles can make a big difference. We have a couple of hemlocks in the back yard that have a nice sound to them when there is a breeze or strong wind.

    The bright beech leaves look marvellous against the dark background, Steve.

  7. These lovely leaves really stand out against the conifers and snow, Steve. It’s a nice contrast and a promise of spring renewal.

    I’ve grown increasingly fond of beech trees, and these photos of the lingering leaves are lovely.

  9. Very nice series! It’s interesting the way certain trees don’t shed their leaves until they bud in spring.
